All measures are in centimeters. The lumber I am using is 2*4 and for heavy duty 2*7.


details

Under this the second shelf there is a radiator so only about half could be used for storage. From the floor and up, first 3 banana boxes in height for storage, then first layer there the LGB trains will go and on top of that, the second level for 90mm (1/18 ) scale trains.

IMAG1396  -- this is the basic frame I am building. As you can see it is self-supporting, I can even move it to another wall if I want to, no holes in the wall needed here.
